Why is the J-31 variant taking so long compared with the J-20 plane?
Well if they would keep the same pace as the F35C program and asuming FC-31 is the equivilant of the X-35. we should see them enter service by 2031. My bet is they are gonna be ready before that.. :)

China have tightend up opsec in the last years and have grown to the point that they are now trying to hide or downplay there strength/progress, this mean we wont see or hear much about new projects untill much later in there development progress.
